The Cyclist is all about sharing the joy of cycling with buddies. Getting out on your bike is one of the easiest ways to exercise and when your buddies join in then ‘social cycling’ increases ‘happy hormones’ too. Cycle buddies feel less stressed and are better equipped to manage anxiety or depression. Studies show that they even increase the production of proteins, which support the creation of new brain cells! As such, cycling has beneficial effects for all age groups and genders. So, clean your bike or invest in a new one and find ways to make cycling a part of your life. The easiest way to begin is to use your bike as a means of day to day transport. Start by cycling to the local shops, and build your way up to commuting to school or work. An estimated one billion people ride bicycles every day in chase of health and happiness. Show your support for cycling and encourage others to do the same! We aim to increase the number of people who cycle and hope that cycling can help you discover new friends who are happy to travel with you for miles without polluting the environment.
